Re: Looking for info and value 22" ride

22" A Medium Rides typically sell for around $120-140 where I live. They sit for weeks on craigslist for $150.

Re: Tom Placement

I've used many different mounting systems over the years on my kits. It's all about the individual drums. I have a 12x8 Ludwig 3-ply tom that sounds good with the mount. I have another 12x8 that...

Re: Gretsch RB, what heads are you using?

Yes. I used these heads on mine as well, as modern-sized heads didn't fit.

Re: Questions about recent selling of vintage drum sets

I've bought and sold a few times during this, um, unique time. To be safe, wear masks and gloves and do the transaction outside. Some people want to do a PayPal/Venmo transaction, and that's fine,...

Re: Celebrating 14 years on VDF!

A great "family" to be a part of, indeed! 11 years, myself. It's been wonderful to get to learn and pass around knowledge for all this time!

Re: My First Vintage Cymbal

I am! I'm not actively hunting online, but I'm on the lookout, locally and when I'm on tour.

Congrats on the 16! I can't wait to hear how you think it sounds in your setup!

Re: My First Vintage Cymbal

I happened upon a Kashian 20" ride that I just had to buy. To me, it DOES sound like a vintage A. It's a little on the heavy side, so it has clear definition, but unlike the A rides of comparable...

Re: Mexican Made PDP Drums

I have had many of these kits pass through my hands, as I help students buy drum sets. The CX, LX, and MX series kits are great-sounding drums! I like them more than I liked my old DW kit. I had...

Re: Snare Wire Buzz!

The heads on a well-timed drum will sympathetically resonate with other frequencies. In order to eliminate the snare buzz, you'll have to remedy that, or learn to live with it. :)

I'm curious to...

Re: Does it have to match?

My snare never matches my kit, wrap-wise. I bought a silver sparkle snare to match my silver sparkle kit, but the silver sparkle snare better matches, tonally, the gold sparkle kit. Go figure...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

I have a Jazzette kit in gold sparkle. Somebody replaced the rail mount on the bass drum with a Pearl mount, though. It's a shame, but the plus side is that I was able to afford it that way! 😄 I...

Re: Beater Kit

I bought an Enforcer kit for $50 on craigslist, slapped some coated Ambassadors on it, and tuned it. It sounds fine. Enforcer is on par with Percussion Plus, Rockwood, Fender Starcaster, Sunlite,...

Re: Slingerland Hollywood Ace question

$250-300 is what I see them going for, more if it's a desirable finish.

I agree--I've owned several Jazz Fests, some Gretschs, and a couple of wood Rogers. None of them compare to the Hollywood...

Re: Future Vintage?

I specifically sought out an 80s Tama kit. Found a Superstar in 14/18/24...it was exactly what I was hoping for! I'm curious to try an "All Maple Shell" Pearl kit from the 70s. I hear great things...

Re: Another Craigslist Rant............

I asked for somebody to verify that a bass drum was 20" They said it was, that they had just measured it with tape. I got out there, and it was a 22". It turns out they measured the depth, hoop to...

Re: 28" Ludwig Marching Bass Drums...which one to use for Drum kit

I have used a 28x14, a 28x10, and a 28x7 bass drum for gigs/studio work. The 10" sounds the best--it smacks you in the gut and doesn't have the uncontrollable rumble that the 14" has, and it has...

Re: Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all your gear?

I felt overwhelmed with my 12 kits, 36 snares, and 300 cymbals. I downsized to 6 kits, 16 snares, and 100 cymbals. It felt so good, I'm looking to downsize more. Simplicity is so freeing. But,...

Re: Vintage Snares vs. Modern Snares

Hmm...I usually just do a touch up tuning of my snare before a gig (for the room) and don't mess with it until the next gig. I only bring one snare per gig, too, but I'll bring the snare I want for...

Re: Vintage Snares vs. Modern Snares

Depends on the snare and situation. Sometimes you want a fat woody sound that comes from the baseball bat edges of a 3-ply Ludwig or Slingerland snare, and sometimes you want something more snappy,...
